Water is a scarce resource, let’s conserve it!

By Zandile Mthembu

Water is essential for all living things. Water covers 80% of our planet Earth. This however does not mean water is sufficient for all. In fact, of that 80% only less than 1% of that is fresh and drinkable. Government annually sets aside a week to raise awareness for our water as a scarce resource.

Minister of Water and Sanitation Sizwe Mchunu has issued a warning that as a country we should use water sparingly – with the recent water shortages , dams running dry, a the drought threats, it will be in our best interest to save water, every drop counts.

Research has shown that in 2030 we will have shortage of water so great that the next world war might be for water. We however, can change that because our usage of water is unreasonable. One of the ways would be for us to purify our water an infinite number of times so that we save our scarce resource –WATER!
